Today is a BIG day in our community—it’s National Scrapbooking Day! This is the day that we can celebrate this hobby that we love that allows us to record our memories while we get creative! Today we have three challenges to spark that creativity and inspire you to create! We also have a special offer for you today:
Start printing and cutting our digital files with this coupon now, and create with these challenges we have chosen for you today!
These challenges can be used on any project: scrapbook layouts, traveler’s notebook spreads or pockets! We want to see you think outside of the box and get creative with each of them!
Challenge #1 | Use Numbers in a BIG way on your page to signify an important date or number for the story that you’re telling. We love the way that Katarina used our Large Acetate Numbers on her mixed-media background, and hand stitched on each one too!
Challenge #2 | Add a series of three photos on your project, as Melissa Mann did here on this stunning page! They can be the same photo, printed three times for maximum impact, three slightly different photos, snapped in succession—the outtakes can be the best!—but use three similar photos on your page. And, if you love the big “you are amazing” title that Melissa used, check out this digital cut file in the shop (and don’t forget to use the coupon code above!)
Challenge #3 | Repeat a shape! Whether stars like in Amanda-jayne Baldwin’s layout above, or hearts, like on Marsha Farris’ traveler’s notebook spread, use repetition to create a big impact! To make it visually interesting, remember that you can use different products—like stamps, die cuts, chipboard, or acetate in the same shape, together on your project!
Complete each separate challenge, using at least two Elle’s Studio product (digitals included!) on your project for a chance to win one of three $25 gift certificates to our shop! We will be randomly selecting a winner from each challenge! If you complete all three challenges, you will also be entered to win a grand prize of a $50 gift certificate to the shop!
Join our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group and post your entries under the corresponding challenge posts, including the grand prize post. Each project will count as one entry, even if you have included multiple challenges in that project.
If you post your projects on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio, you’ll get the chance to be featured on our feed and Stories, but you must post in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group to be entered to win the challenges!
Entries will close at 11:59pm PST on May 15th, and the winners will be announced here on the blog and in our Facebook Group on May 17th’s Design Team Inspiration post! Good luck, and we can’t wait to see what you create!
Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
